Review: Western Digital My Book 3.0 (2 TB, USB 3.0)
October 5, 2010
It is, once again, time to upgrade external hard drives. After I bought two Western Digital 750 GB My Books, I swore I wouldn’t need to upgrade for a LONG time. Well that long time has been long up, but I figured it wasn’t worth it until I could get a 2TB drive at a reasonable price. That time and price are now. I looked at the Western Digital Elements 2 TB (USB 2) which is a really sweet buy right now at only $120 (on Amazon), but thought that maybe I should consider doing the USB 3.0 thing. The Western Digital My Book 3.0 2TB is USB 3.0 for only $40 more at $160 (on Amazon). Of course I don’t any USB 3.0 ports, and it sure would be cool to take full advantage of that speed… so I broke down and bought the Western Digital My Book 3.0 2 TB with PCIe Adapter Card.
